Program Assistant, Militarism and Human Rights
As FCNL’s Program Assistant for Militarism and Human Rights, Emmet Hollingshead lobbies for more peaceful, ethical, and holistic U.S. foreign policy. Our international stance should not be based on military might, but on compassionate and inclusive leadership focused on mutual interests. To that end, Emmet works with members of Congress and their staff, fellow peace activists, and grassroots supporters to develop better ways for the U.S. to engage with the world.
Emmet graduated cum laude from Macalester College in 2018, where he wrote an Honors Thesis on the political structure of Iranian proxy groups. He has previously interned with Congressman Keith Ellison, given a TED talk on local governments’ actions in the international sphere, and coordinated international professional exchange programs led by the U.S. State Department.
He is a member of Pittsburgh Friends Monthly Meeting, an avid soccer player, and a newfound Washington Wizards fan.
